Pierre Allent started his miltary career as a volunteer gunner in a regiment in Pas-de-Calais. He served during the bombardment of Lille in October 1792 and subsequently in the wars during the French Revolution and the Empire. His health was weak and Carnot Lazare gave him an assignment in the topographical offices. After executing several important missions Napoleon made him secretary of the committee that examined defense plans. In 1814 he was a deputy of Joseph Bonaparte when the defense of Paris was prepared.

Between 1817 and 1819 he was Under Secretary of State under Marshal Gouvion-Saint-Cyr. His appointment in 1819 of president of litigation at the Council of State lasted until his death. In 1832 he became a Pair de France and he entered the Chambre des Pairs. He died in 1837 in Paris.
